Learning how to fly properly is very important, especially when you consider how expensive it can be to continue buying new planes. That's why ARCS teaches RC planes for beginners. Contact us in San Antonio, Texas, for more information.
Join the Club
Being a member of the ARCS offers you an opportunity to become an active participant. Our flying site is stable, our instructor program will help you get started if you are a novice, and our membership is composed of a lot of friendly folks who share a common interest.
As a new member, you will probably have some questions. You should also understand that you are expected to contribute time and effort in support of club activities. Should you be a newcomer to aeromodelling, you will encounter questions concerning building, flying, and participation in club activities. You will find that the ARCS members are very helpful with the answers to these and other questions you may have. Just feel free to ask any member at the flying field or monthly meeting, which is held on the third Tuesday of the month.
To qualify as a member in good standing, you must also possess a current Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) membership. This requirement provides basic insurance coverage and affords us representation in a national organization that has our modeling best interest in mind. It also is a provision in the club's land lease.
If you would like to become an ARCS member, please fill out our application. The application is in MS Word format and can be saved and attached to an email. It is recommended that the applications be sent to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com via e-mail. The application can also be sent to the club treasurer by United States mail or carried to the monthly club meetings.
ARCS has a $50 initiation fee for all new members who are not members in good standing of another local area RC club. See our bylaws for details.
Our annual dues amount to $60. Prorating starts July 1 at $5 per month. For new members joining the club on or after the October 1, dues for the remainder of the current year shall be waived if dues for the next year are paid in full. Please call or email either the club secretary or treasurer for our exact fee amounts.
Fees and applications will be accepted by any club officer at Cannon Field or by the treasurer at club meetings. Following the receipt of the annual dues and fees, the new member will be given the combination to the field gates and lock boxes. We are looking forward to your participation in our club.
